Naw, that's real. I remember they use to Advertise a kit in the car magazines I subscribe to, I forgot the name of the company but there's probably a couple of companies that make a kit. Google it.

It is great, the cops can be pricks out here too, and front license plates look so ugly on fourth gens, especially the earlier 93-97 models.

I think Superman just mounted it to the air damn. If I was required to have a front plate that's what I'd do as well.

I'm required to have a front license plate but I don't, too ugly. I've never had a front license plate on it, when I bought it it didn't have one. In all the years I've had it I only got pulled over twice for it, and got warnings both times. And the other times I've gotten pulled over for other reasons it was never brought up. But I want to get the tuck away before my luck runs out.

Correct.

(I've since removed the padding that you see on the edges (since they never touched anything anyway, lol)

I have mine tucked in further than 'normal' so it's not as visible when down:
